I'm linking up for Five Question Friday today!

1) What is your favorite Easter tradition?
Going to church with my family & having lunch/dinner with both sides of my family.

2) Are you a "shower" or a "long, hot bath" kind of person?
I definitely enjoy a bath over a shower, but rarely have time for them.. only about once a week! :(

3) Can you parallel park and if so when was the last time you did it?
I think I can? Wouldn't know though, don't think I've ever actually done it in real life, except for my drivers test... ha

4) What is your favorite Easter candy?
Not a huge candy person, but I do like the Reeses Eggs!! One of my roomies has had a stash of them in her room for a while & we munch on them daily.. pathetic

5) Do you go all out with the Easter Bunny or focus on the religious part of the holiday?
I have always gotten an Easter basket from my parents, and since being with Adam I have given him one for the past 3 years, but we do focus on the religious part of the holiday~because that is obviously the BEST part!!! :-)

~I hope y'all have a blessed Easter weekend with your families & remember WHY we are celebrating this weekend~

‎"To know you gave the world your only son for us, to know your name and live within the savior's love, and He took my place knowing he'd be crucified, and you loved, you loved a people undeserved!"

Thankful Thursday!

I have lots to be thankful for on this beautiful Thursday so I thought I'd share....

~I am super thankful to have a job that allows me to "bum it" on the reg & wear outfits such as the one I am sporting today...

(("bumming it" in corporate terms simply means jeans and a plain tee.. seriously wish it meant nike shorts and a t-shirt though, ha!))

~I am thankful that today at work we are celebrating a REALLY REALLY REALLY great person.. my GRANDPA!! He does a lot for our company.. like brings his famous "Bobby-Q" (BBQ) about once a month, completly renovated the new building were in, among many other things.. & today we are giving him a new MacbookPro to say "thanks!" :-) & having ice cream sundaes.. Did I mention my job rocks??

~I am thankful that I will be with my family & Adam's family all weekend to celebrate Easter!

~I hope y'all have a great Easter weekend!

I'm linking up with Jamie today for What I'm Loving Wednesday!

1~I am LOVING that Adam and I got to spend the entire day together! We started our day by eating breakfast together at Waffle House.. then we took the longest nap of my life--it was amazing!-- then we went to dinner at new seafood place, it was alright, then we rounded out our day together by going to the Georgia baseball game! SO thankful for days like today when all we have to do is be together :-)

2~I am LOVING that when I looked at my planner today I realized just how close I am to being done with this semester!!

3~I am LOVING that I will start getting to work a lot more once school is out..

4~Which brings me to something else I am LOVING.. I am LOVING that I will finally be able to save enough money to get the speedy 35 I have been wanting! ((It's much easier to work when you have a big purchase on your mind!))

5~I am LOVING that the latest deal on Athens Daily Deals was for a dog grooming salon.. Miss Lexie needs her hair done..BAD.. so I am calling tomorrow to make her an appt! I am also calling to make an appt for me to get highlights! :-)

6~I am LOVING the color of my nails, Essie-Ballet Slippers!

Well, that's about it! Hope y'all had a great Wednesday!

Oh hi.. did you forget I existed? Yeah, I am the worst blogger ever...

Ugh, seriously.. it feels like it's been SO long since I've even had time to think about blogging (ok, it's only been like 10 days but STILL!!)
In between school, working & just life has been OOC!
I have had project after project AFTER PROJECT.. ((Story of an Education major's life..right?!))
Luckily, the worst is over & this semester is 2 weeks away from being OUT OF MY LIFE! :-)
*I promise to get back into this soon now that all the craziness is almost over!

SO to get back into the swing of things I'm linking up for Miscellany Monday!

~This weekend I went shopping with my sister-in-law & I picked up this cute mirrored jewelry box from Target. I have been eyeing it for a while & finally decided to buy it!

I love that it matches all the mirrored stuff in my bedroom :-)

~I am really wanting to add some blonde(ish) into my hair for summer.. here's what I'm thinking, what do y'all think?!

images from here

~I'm stopping by Sephora on my way to class today to pick up some more lipstick.. I'm sure I'll leave with a few more goodies.. always do! :-)

~I got two new candles this weekend from Wally World.. L.O.V.E. them.. PERFECT springy/summery smells...

this one is in my room


& I couldn't find a picture of the other one but it's called Peach & Mango and smells SO good!

Have a great Monday y'all!

~I'm linking up with Jamie today for WILW~

I am LOVING that we are going to the home opener Braves game on Friday!!
We heart the braves..LOTS!!
So many memories~

-babies at the home opener 2 years ago-
{fun little fact: this has been Adam's dashboard picture in his truck for the last 2 yrs and he refuses to change it!}

I am LOVING that it's Wednesday because that means I'm babysitting Carolyne-Grace all day.
She has been asleep since 10:30... I really want her to wake up so we can go to lunch! :-p

I am LOVING my new Mac Mineralized Skin finish~I am not loving, however, that I got super burnt on my face at the beach this wknd & my face is peeling and I haven't been able to use it much!

I am LOVING that Clean & Clear came out with a Morning Burst body wash! I have been using the face wash for a couple of weeks & I LOVE it.. I seriously does wake you up!! Can't wait to go pick it up sometime this week...

~Hope everyone is having a GREAT Wednesday!~

We got back yesterday afternoon from a GREAT weekend away in Tybee!!
We had so much fun!

We got down there Thursday night and pretty much went straight to bed.
Friday we spent part of the day on the beach~but it was a little too windy so we didn't stay out long. We went into Savannah to my aunt and uncle's house to visit & then went to an amazing dinner at Pearl's for Adam's birthday!

Me & my twin Jessica!

After dinner we went out to the bars in Tybee.. {Let's just say it aint no Athens.. there are always some characters out in Tybee, haha}

the girlies, ashley me jess & colleen


& the high light of our night... Adam's roommate took my Nikon and was going around the bar telling people he worked for TybeeTime.Com and he was taking pictures of everyone! ~So now I have pictures of 100 random people, haha.. we thought it was pretty funny..

So.. meet some of our "friends" {clockwise from top left}
"The Bachelor" & "Marissa", "Jenny & "Joe", "Megan & Stacy~BFF!", "Wanda & Earl"

Me & "The Bachelor"

Tybee is the kind of place you can act as crazy as you want because there is NO ONE to impress ha
So we did just that!

gettin our groove on with the locals


Colleen & my cousin, Taylor!

Saturday we got up & went to breakfast then spent the rest of the day at the beach!
It was such a nice day!!!

That night we went out to dinner again


Andy & Ash

Everyone at dinner!

Me & A :-)

and after dinner we went and got THE BEST ICE CREAM EVER!!!
~We get it everytime we go to Tybee.. it's their "signature" flavor, which is basically oreo, peanut butter, cookie dough.. and something else~Idk but its amazing!

AHH I want it again NOW!!!

I am so blesssed to have such great friends to spend this weekend with :-)
